  2. Reverse appliqué blocks

    by , 07-17-2013 at 05:39 AM
    I am trying to learn to appliqué. And thought I would try to to do a couple of simple designs. Maybe a butterfly? Or flower? Since I have never appliquéd I would like a big block that I could maybe turn into a baby quilt.

    Any suggestions?

  4. Brother Charger 441- how to thread

    by , 07-16-2013 at 03:45 PM
    I was recently given this machine as a gift, but it came with no instruction manual. This is my first machine, and my first project is a block quilt. Since there is minimal information online, I thought I would post the very basic things I've come gotten worked out. I'll start with how to thread the machine. There are pictures for each step.

    1)Put the thread on one of the posts, unwinding to the left and behind. (It may not matter if it is to the left and in front, but I haven't ...

  5. A modern wedding quilt

    by , 07-16-2013 at 01:20 PM
    Hi, I am looking for a pattern that is mostly white, but has some very bright colors, like a bright jelly roll in it. I saw a trip around the world done with mostly whites, but with some really fun bright kaffe fassett type colors. Does anyone know of a pattern like this? It is for my niece's wedding. She is painting her walls cobalt blue. Thanks

  8. Log Cabin Quilt for my Son!

I will definitely do another QAYG because it is easier dealing with quilting a square as opposed to the entire quilt, but I won't do each square individually - I'll do it in strips. Now I've got to get fabric to make matching pillow cases next week.
